    why do the instructions say NOT to put on the face of the cape?
  2. Because its assumed when the directions say oil the cape, you know enough to include the head and eyes,, nose and lips. Basics. duh!

    Called Ozark ; and they told me not to put it on the face , only on the neck , didn`t say why ???
  4. Basic English DUH! Perhaps you should have actually read the post.
    Excerpt from the directions.
    apply a LIGHT (2-3 oz. per average cape) coat of Krow-Oil on the skin from behind the ears to the start of the brisket. Do not put any oil on the face.

    I can't think of any reason why you shouldn't put it on the face? lol

    Talked to Ozark today and they said it will cause stretch on the face and you will have to much skin. They said they use eye balm for the eyes and glands, so the next question would be who has used eye balm and what were the results?

    OutdoorHub Mobile, the information engine of the outdoors.
  8. That is the dumbest thing I have heard in a while. To much stretch? Here I was thinking is was something silly like maybe the hide paste would not stick.
